Implantology is the branch of Dentistry concerned with replacing missing teeth and restoring the function, appearance and balance of the mouth.

The replacement of lost teeth can be partial or complete.

Implant rehabilitation is partial when the patient still has some healthy teeth and only the missing teeth are restored.

When it involves rehabilitating all the teeth in one or both dental arches, we consider it to be a complete rehabilitation.

Is it possible to place dental implants on the same day?

Yes! Nowadays, modern implantology allows the entire process to be performed in just one day in some cases, with not only the implants being placed but also temporary fixed teeth within less than 24 hours, using techniques such as All on Four and All on Six.

For immediate implant placement, it is necessary to evaluate the quality and quantity of bone, the number of implants, and the teeth that will be implanted.

However, with conventional implants, it is necessary to wait for 3 months to place the tooth crown.

Laser in Implantology: Less Pain and Shorter Recovery Time.

At Atelier do Sorriso Dental Clinic, in the Algarve, we use laser technology in our implant placement surgeries.

Using laser technology in dental implant surgery can provide several benefits, including:

  • Precision: Lasers can precisely select the intervention zone and depht, reducing the chance of damaging surrounding teeth and tissues. This accuracy is particularly important in implant placement, where the implant needs to be inserted precisely into the jawbone.
  • Reduced bleeding: The use of lasers in surgery can reduce and avoid bleeding, minimizing the amount of loss during the procedure.
  • Reduced pain and discomfort: Lasers can reduce pain and discomfort during and after procedure.
  • Faster healing: Lasers can promote faster healing by stimulating cell growth and reducing inflammation, resulting in less post-operative discomfort and a quicker recovery.
  • Reduced risk of infection: The use of lasers can reduce the risk of infection by killing bacteria on contact with the laser beam.

Overall, the use of lasers in dental implant surgery can provide numerous benefits, resulting in less discomfort, faster healing, and improved outcomes for the patient. However, it’s important to note that not all dental implant surgeries require the use of lasers, and your dentist or oral surgeon will determine the best approach for your specific needs.

    Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Implants:

    What are dental implants?

    Dental implant is a titanium cylinder that replaces the lost roots of a dental element (inner part of the tooth).

    After the period of osseointegration of the implant to the organism, it will receive a crown or bridge to replace the lost tooth.

    Dental implants vary in diameter (3 to 6 mm) and length (4 to 18 mm). Depending on the height and bone thickness of the jaws, the diameter or length are planned to improve the support capacity of the crowns.

    Is the dental implant surgery painful?

    No, implant placement is not painful. Anaesthesia is local, exactly what is taken to make any dental treatment.

    The postoperative period is also not painful, and we recommend only an analgesic, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and rest on the day of surgery.
